    With as little snow as we have right now I think you would be fine. I rode from the bridge along the river and up to Kay Marie in the Springer system and back around on the road. Didn't notice the wind until I was on inner springer taking it all in the form of a head wind.

    The coming cold should open up a few more areas to ride for my smaller tires.,

    freeze over some of the soft spots. If no new snow, be able to go almost anywhere

    Yep between the bridge and Kaye Marie or along the side of the water treatment plant coming up out of the river bank there is a water crossing not too deep I just ride through. It hasn't bothered me a couple friends had minor issues with brakes and rear deraileur freezing up.
